Book Description

Aug. 26 2003 Who Was...?
At age two, Helen Keller became deaf and blind. She lived in a world of silence and darkness and she spent the rest of her life struggling to break through it. But with the help of teacher Annie Sullivan, Helen learned to read, write, and do many amazing things. This inspiring illustrated biography is perfect for young middle-grade readers. Black-and-white line drawings throughout, sidebars on related topics such as Louis Braille, a timeline, and a bibliography enhance readers' understanding of the subject.

Illustrated by John O'Brien.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helen Keller Jan. 19 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
I loved this book because it made sense. It told about Helen Keller's life and as a blind and deaf kid and adult . It also told about where she went to school and about the places she went .It told about who taught Helen how to read and write and talk! I also liked this book because it was hard to put it down when I had to go somewhere. This book also told about her little sister and how Helen got sick and turned blind and deaf and how her teacher died. This book was great! You should read it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yikes! Terrible Cringeworthy Grammar! Feb. 9 2014
By still breathing - Published on Amazon.com
Wow, I can hardly believe this book was published! There is no way I'm letting my child read a book that has such ridiculous errors.
Here are a few examples, but by no means is it all of them.

Page 50 “At the water pump. Helen held her mug under the tap.”
Page 2 “She wrote several books. And she gave lectures around the world.”
Page 3 “After his first wife died, and he married a woman named Kate Adams.”

By D. Tobin - Published on Amazon.com
Wonderful introduction to biographies for the early reader set (6-10 yrs old, depending on reading ability). It provides enough info to be useful, but not so much that the child is bogged down and loses interest. The series is fabulous.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good series, not so good individual volume June 7 2011
By Yvonne M. Lacy - Published on Amazon.com
While I as a school librarian appreciate the popularity of the "Who Was...?" junior biography series, I find the quality uneven. Other volumes have been wonderful, but I found the Helen Keller book to be awkwardly written, including many pages where the author jumped from one aspect of Ms. Keller's life to another, with little or no transition. The author should have been aware that Helen's father was called "Captain" as a title; it is not correct to refer to him just as "Captain" as if it were his given name. If the book is truly written for up to 10-year-old children, it falls into the lower reading level end, with extremely short and choppy sentences... not a challenge for the 4th and 5th-graders who will be reading it.
